  • Visit Minnawarra Chapel between 8.30 - 9.30am to collect your run's timing bib and your kilt. The chapel is located by the History House across Minnawarra Park's red bridge. 
  • Get into the Kilt Run spirit and have your face painted with Scottish woad, free from the face painters in the Minnawarra Park gazebo.
  • Grab a bit of breakfast or a cup of coffee before heading to the Main Stage at 9.30am to prepare for a pre-race warm up at the starting line on Armadale Road.
  • Finally, don't forget to have fun and to look after yourself while you're on the course.

The City is providing a fantastic opportunity to own your own kilt by purchasing one from $25 when you register.

Fashioned with two belt buckles and velcro to adjust, these kilts are made of good material that will keep you warm while on the course. The kilts are measured in inches and it may be necessary to adjust within one or two sizes of your original pant size. If you are picking up your kilt, please arrive early if you want to select the right fit for you. 

Child's kilt: $25
Adult kilts: $35

New kilt sizes

How do I get my kilt?

Kilts bought online are to be picked up at the Perth Kilt Run registration area as you check in.

We recommend that all runners wear comfortable and suitable attire, such as bike pants or shorts, to wear underneath your kilt.
